I thought that I would share one of my favorite dishes to make:


3 large tomatoes, diced small
3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
2 tablespoons good extra-virgin olive oil
6 fresh basil leaves, sliced into ribbons
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 baguette, sliced into 1/2-inch rounds (about 14 slices)
Pepper and Salt to taste

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Add the tomatoes, garlic, extra-virgin olive oil, pepper & salt, basil and balsamic vinegar to a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Let sit at room temperature while you toast the bread.

Slice bread and add to a baking sheet in a single layer. Toast in the oven until golden brown about 5 minutes. Top the bread with tomatoes and drizzle with remaining extra-virgin olive oil right before serving and you can also add pieces of prosciutto to your Bruschetta.
